Measuring the Thermal Conductivity of Copper
Copper (Cu) is among the most thermally conductive metals and is often selected for use as heat spreaders in electronics. The high thermal efficiency of copper makes it a better solution than some lower priced solutions.
As the thermal conductivity of the material is a critical performance attribute, an effective means of verufying the performance of the amterial is highly desirable. Ideally, researchers are seeking a fast, easy means of verifying the thermal conductivity of the material as incoming material quality incraesingly becomes a concern
C-Therm TCi's Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) technique was recently extended in offering a broader range of testing capabilities in highly-conductive metals. Recent test results on the three samples of pure copper are presented below
